My Little Cancer

By Vidyananda das

Dear Prabhus,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada! Hare Krishna!

I have a little story to tell you about a gift I recently received from Krishna. He put me on notice about my life and service to Srila Prabhupada. I was told I have cancer.

When the doctor found it 3 weeks ago, they said it was a big cancer polyp in my colon and they expected that I would soon be getting radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and most likely spend the rest of my life wearing a colostomy bag because of the location of the tumor.

I didn’t have any symptoms that led me to complain about it, we found it during a routine physical. Since I was 57 the doctor sent me for the colonoscopy that I should have had at 50.

I had been without health insurance for years and only went for the physical exam because I changed to a job that included health insurance.

As doctors like to do, they poked and prodded me with more specific tests and they now find an early stage one disease which is much more treatable. I have a 99% prospect of NOT needing a colostomy bag. Plus I’m avoiding pre-surgery radiation and chemotherapy.

It became ‚Äúmy little cancer‚ÄĚ.

After I get past the surgery and recovery I should have many more years of seva and sanga.

The point of my story is that everyone reading this should have a colonoscopy by age 50. Please schedule one right away.

Apparently, my story will have a happy ending. But if you neglect yourself, don’t have the exam, and get colon cancer you will suffer and your service will be interrupted.

The colonoscopy is a simple, painless procedure. If it’s normal you’ve set a baseline and probably won’t need to be checked again from many years. It’s much easier to have a quick colonoscopy than to have expensive, exhausting surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

And if you catch it too late even the surgeons can’t help.

Please, get this simple test soon. If Krishna hadn’t arranged for me to get this job I wouldn’t have found it until it was too late. Don’t let that happen to you and your family.

Even if you don’t have insurance you should be able to find public assistance for these procedures. Or most doctors will consider adjusting their fees if you ask.

Thank you very much. Hare Krishna!

All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Dear Vidyananda Prabhu,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Thank you for this excellent advice.

I am very happy to hear that you will not have to undergo radiation/chemo and that this is now considered a “little cancer.”

Hope to see you sometime soon.

your servant,

Vaisesika Dasa

Hare Krishna Prabhu, Dandavat
A lot of researches on the anti-cancer properties of (PANchagavya) specially cow urine have confirmed of its superb powers. Various Go-shalas and Cow protection organizations in India have successfully treated thousands of cancer cases wether with great relief or even complete recoveries in some cases. Would advise you to try and visit in any of these centers ( that are much cheap and affordable)

infact most of thses problems would rarely occur if one takes this distillate on a regular basis that has many propertises apart from being anti-cancer.

I am giving you the numbers of a Panchagavys Cancer Hospital recently opened in Valsad 100 Kms from Mumbai that is treating so many such cases at lowest costs. We are actually trying to make a documentary film on the same subject ( Panchagavya) nad have witnessed tha magical improvements in patients within 10 days personally during their interviews.

Valsad Hospital number is 08632268081
alternatively another such center is at Nagpur -Go-Vigyan Anusandhan Kendra Ph 0712-2772273/2734182 (

Wish you a fast recovery.

Dear Vidyananda prabhu,

I’ve been meaning to thank you for this note and to encourage other devotees over 50 to get a colonoscopy if they are able. I haven’t had health insurance for a couple of years, but I recently realized that I’m eligible for medical care from the Veterans Affairs hospitals. When I had a checkup recently, my doctor also recommended a colonoscopy because I’m 61. They found a small, precancerous polyp in my descending colon. It posed no immediate danger, but may have become malignant in five or ten years. They removed it, and the pathology results will decide whether I need a full colonoscopy.

Why do I share this? Because I’d like to see more of us geezers get the chance to get back to the point of full-time service to Mahaprabhu’s mission. If you have the means, oldsters, please accept the austerity of finding out what’s up so we’re not surprised by a notice on Dandavats.
